Burn Injuries

San Antonio Burn Injury Lawyer

If you have suffered a burn injury and are considering a personal injury lawsuit, it is important to understand that your right to recover compensation and the amount of compensation you are entitled to recover largely depends on the following concepts.

  • Correctly identifying the wrongdoer responsible for your injury
  • Properly valuing the physical, emotional, and mental cost of your injury

Correctly identifying the person or company responsible for your burn injury can be difficult because accidents resulting in burn injuries often involve products and people. Products are not designed to catch fire or explode, but when they do, they are often under the control of a third party. This raises the issue of whether a person or a product is responsible for your injury. To answer this question, you need the help of trained lawyers that can identify and prove the cause of your injuries.

Properly valuing the physical, emotional, and mental costs associated with your injury will dictate the value of your claim. When you are injured, you have a right to recover financial compensation for the pain and suffering you experience. Because burn injuries are some of the most painful injuries imaginable, you may be entitled to significant compensation for your pain and suffering. However, reducing a subjective feeling to dollars and cents is difficult. Therefore, it is important to work with lawyers that have experience in this area of the law. A lawyer that handles burn injury lawsuits understands how to value a burn injury claim properly and will not settle for an unfair amount.

At The Ammons Law Firm, we have handled burn injury lawsuits throughout San Antonio for 20 years. During this time, we have helped injured clients recover financial compensation for burns caused by car accidents, workplace accidents, plant explosions, and defective products. These are complex areas of the law that require training, ability, and resources. With the help of our San Antonio burn injury lawyers, you can have confidence that your claim will be handled properly and that you will recover the compensation you are entitled to under the law.

What is the Value of a Burn Injury Claim?

After suffering a burn injury, you have a right to bring a personal injury lawsuit against the party responsible for your injuries and recover compensation for the harm you have suffered. Under Texas law, this right to recover compensation entitles you to receive both economic and non-economic damages.

Economic Damages in Personal Injury Lawsuits

Economic damages are best thought of as the financial harm caused by your injury. For instance, if you suffered a burn injury that required extensive medical treatment and were unable to work during the recovery process, you may be entitled to recover the cost of your medical treatment and the value of your lost earnings. Economic damages can be significant in a burn injury case, and it is vital to have a trained lawyer that can properly identify and prove all costs associated with your injuries.

Non-economic Damages in Personal Injury Lawsuits

Non-economic damages are best thought of as the intangible harm caused by your injury. Non-economic damages allow you to recover the financial value of your pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of consortium. Non-economic damages are usually more difficult to recover than economic damages because they are subjective and depend on your unique situation. To properly hold wrongdoers responsible for non-economic damages, you will need a trained lawyer with experience handling burn injury cases.

  • Pain and Suffering – Pain and suffering include the physical pain and discomfort that victims experience because of their injuries.
  • Mental Anguish – Mental anguish includes the emotional stress and trauma that victims experience because of their injuries.
  • Loss of Consortium – Loss of consortium includes the loss of companionship and assistance victims suffer because of their injuries.

Burn Injury Cases We Handle

Post-Collision Fires

Post-collision car and truck fires are very dangerous and lead to serious burn injuries. A post-collision fire may result for many reasons, but many times they are caused by a defect in the vehicle itself. If you were in a crash that led to a post-collision fire, it is important to have the crash investigated by a product defect lawyer to determine if a defect in the automobile caused your injuries. Under strict product liability law, a manufacturer is strictly liable for all damages caused by a defective product.

Defective Pressure Cookers

Pressure cookers have a long history of failing under normal use, causing scalding hot water to explode onto unsuspecting victims. This serious risk has resulted in thousands of injuries across the country. At The Ammons Law Firm, we represent several clients for injuries caused by defective pressure cookers and have the resources and training needed to hold these large manufacturers responsible for their defective products.

Defective Consumer Products

We represent clients with burn injuries caused by defective products. While a handful of faulty products, such as hoverboards and pressure cookers, have commanded national attention, most burn injuries are caused by products that never receive national attention. Regardless of the product that burned you, it is important to have the product investigated by trained attorneys to determine if you have a claim against the product manufacturer.

Plant and Pipeline Explosions

When industrial companies act negligently, serious accidents happen. Additionally, industrial plants utilize highly specialized products that may be defective. Industrial explosions are complicated cases that require training and ability. At The Ammons Law Firm, we have represented explosion victims in many high-profile cases and have obtained record-setting verdicts. If you have been injured in an industrial explosion of any kind, we can help you recover the compensation you deserve.
